None of the three preseason favorites in the NL West — the Athletics, Mariners, and Angels — have stepped up in the division, but Astros have filled the void nicely. A .500 performance would give them 87 wins which might just be enough to win the division.. 30-18. Last Week: 8. Houston Astros . 4. player. 135

Last Week: 2. St. Louis Cardinals . 3. player. 32. The Cardinals have certainly been one of the most consistent franchises of the last decade. Will they be able to maintain their offensive production with <strong><a href=. 31-16

71. The Dodgers have won only five of their last ten, but they maintain one of the best overall records in baseball and are on track to win 95+ games.. 28-18. Last Week: 1. Los Angeles Dodgers . 2. player

Last Week: 3. Washington Nationals . 1. player. 90. With a 21-9 record in their last 30 games, the Nationals are showing everyone why they were one of the top preseason favorites to win it all (and Bryce Harper is pretty good too).. 28-19
